MAYAN CALENDAR DAYKEEPER’S JOURNAL
Tone 10 holds the Intention of Manifestation. The Seed/KAN trecena guides a season of creation. KAN represents the Force within the Seed that identifies its Design and Identity. This Force at the heart of the Seed, maintains the integrity of the Design and the Fruit it will bear from its own harvest.
In the core days of the 7th uinal, we recreated a new Seed of our Self. In the 8th uinal we entered a 20-day cycle of Transformation. 8 is the number of “pure spirit” that holds the Intention of Divine Justice. From the dimension of Spirit a Divine Agency Intervenes to Manifest our Dream.
Our Dream was to recreate our Self, believing in the Power to Create our own reality of Peace, Harmony, and Equity in the world. We held Faith in the Divinity of our Intention and the Divine Justice of the Creator. Our Consciousness was raised to the Truth that creating Happiness was a Power Within our Authority to Create by shining the Light of Unconditional Love all around us. At the Heart of all our Dreams is the Longing to Know we are Seen and Loved, that our Lives would matter to someone else. This is the world we longed to live in, where we would all matter to each other.
10-DAY PORTAL, DAY 8: Element of Ether
Portal Days magnify our supernatural experiences through a thinning of the veil to the realm of Spirit. On 10 Reed/BEN a Portal magnifies the Experience of a Sacred Communion with the Creator.
The 8th uinal represents the manifestation of a Major Life Change, as Transformation carried out by Divine Intervention. Reed/BEN resides in the East, the Direction of the Sunrise, our Light, Life and Happiness. BEN holds the Element of Fire. The Color Red represents the Holy Medicine, the Spark of the Sacred, and the “lightning in the blood” that facilitates a tangible experience of the Creator’s Love. On the Medicine Path sacred objects and the Medicine Bundle are kept wrapped in red cloth to identify them as Sacred Medicine.
Daykeepers are presented with Red Beans on the day of their Initiation. Daykeepers are bean carriers holding a pouch of 260 red beans, one for each of the Kin. Some speak of the Visions they receive just reaching into the pouch to run their fingers through the beans. I made a Sacred collection of red mescal beans when I lived in Tucson, Arizona. The pods were difficult to open. My Sacred Exchange was the Blood Sacrifice. The Elders say to always make note when we see our own Blood.
So are we wrapped in the Creator’s Love. The Fire of the Creator’s Love flows as the Holy Water in our Blood. Today we receive the Mark of our Spiritual Identity. By Dreaming of the Highest Aspiration, we revealed our own Identity as Children of Light. The genie held out a magic lamp and the promise of a wish that could come true. We Chose the Wish the Creator Dreamed for us. We Chose to be Identified as a Spark of the Creator’s Love.
On 9 Road/EB a portal magnifies our Consciousness of our Divine Relationship with the Creator. Our Spiritual Genealogy reflects us as the first descendants. We were destined for more than just a journey of survival. Today a Portal magnifies the Consciousness of our Highest Meaning and Purpose.
The 8th uinal represents the Creator’s Intention of Divine Justice. The Creator knew we would bear injustice in our material realm of existence. We were born as a Living Sacrifice to Balance the Light from Above to the Below. By Offering our Dream to the Creator, we made our own Dream Possible. We gave permission for a manifestation of Divine Will.
Reed/BEN is the sign of an Altar. The glyph illustrates channels of Light from Above. Below are the thatched mats where Human would kneel in Humility. The Elders call Reed the “Hollow Bone.” We’re meant to be an open channel to the One Divine Mind of Consciousness. When we Live in an Intention of Unconditional Love, our Channel is Open for Unlimited Possibilities.
Our Strength and Power is drawn from Believing in something Greater than we are, a Supreme Power of Creation that Loves us enough to help us manifest our Dreams. If we can just believe that, we will hold all the Power we Need to create a Universal Experience of Unconditional Love. One Miracle is just as possible as another.
We are Transformed by moving through our own darkness in Leaps of Faith, choosing what we wished that we could believe. When we choose to Know the Creator, it’s a Sacred Wish, a Dream worthy of Divine Justice.
Reed/BEN is the Day Sign of Family and Home that Honors the Children. Children are always the Hope for the Future of Family and Home. Home is the Altar Within where we hold the Authority of our Identity. When we are “Home” we don’t have to be anything other than our Self.
Reed/BEN calls us to an Altar in a position of Humility. We come as Human children of a Divine Creator, bearing all the scars of our experience of physicality. As we surrender our Self, the Creator sees our Choice as Divine. We kneel in the Light of the Creator, Seen as Sacred for choosing a Dream for the Happiness of the Whole.
Reed/BEN is said to be a day to Bless the Home. As we are setting foot into the world of our Dream, Reed/BEN calls us to Offer a Blessing. We can call on the Creator’s Light and Protection to our Home and Family. We can see our place at the feet of the Creator as the “Home” and “Family” we can turn to that is always waiting with a Gift of Unconditional Love. We can Believe in a Gift we would Know in our Heart that would more than make up for the Human Love we once searched for. In the Circle of Home we can Claim our Purpose to Shine from the Inside Out.
Tone 10 of Manifestation holds a Great Blessing and Responsibility. Manifestation requires us to Claim what we have created. We must Believe the Dream will be Manifested in every realm of Being. This is a Powerful Day of Manifestation, marked for Abundance and Prosperity in the 8th uinal of Divine Justice, and magnified by a Portal. Our Dream of Harmony and Equity is the Dream the Creator inspired us to Choose.
On 10 Reed/BEN a Divine Agency Intervenes on our Behalf to Transform our Faith into Believing. We can see the Divinity in our effort, even as we are broken, to Dream of Happiness for the Whole.
“As Above, So Below” is the “Great Law” of Creation. It claims the Universal Spiritual Principle of Balance and Karma, that what is created in one realm will be balanced in all other realms. Everything we materialize first began in the realm of thought and imagination. Through the Spark of Divine Consciousness we are given the Power to Choose the thoughts that Create our own Reality. Today we are Blessed with a Knowing that All the Light Above can be Manifested Below. We can claim our Self as a Creator who made the commitment to Serve as the Hand of God’s Love in the world.
We can claim that our Intentions of Unconditional Love will always bear the Fruit of Love, Harmony, and Equity. Our Power to Create Unconditional Love insures our Dreams of Harmony WILL come true. We are made the Imperishable Seed, Perfected by the Hand of the Creator.
To all my relations, may we be Transformed by Claiming the Miracle of our Choice to Live in Harmony and Equity. When we make Justice for the Whole our own Intention, the Creator Promised to make our Dream come true. May we kneel at our own altar within and ask for the Creator’s Consecration of a new world of experience, claiming that the world we dreamed of has Already Manifested in Spirit. May we Imagine the Miracle when we see it Balanced in the Below. May we Remember how much we are Loved and how much the Creator hoped for us. May we believe in a Dream so much Higher than our Own that we could never imagine for our Self. May we Claim that So Is the Miracle of the Creator’s Divine Will.

TRECENA OF SEED/KAN
Visit the 13-Day Trecena Guide for daily aspects and events of the Seed/KAN trecena.
10 Reed/BEN (Cherokee, Reed/I’HYA)
Galactic Tone 10: Manifestation. What were once intentions or ideas, hopes or fears become physically present with the energy of Ten. What is focused upon with attention and intention becomes real with Ten. Ten is a powerful energy that carries a great responsibility.
Reed/BEN: Reed persons are the spiritual essence, protectors and guiding light for family and home. They are competent speakers who will take up a cause. Very tough and analytical, Reeds endeavor to bring peace, harmony and order to all o their relations. Reeds are blessed with great skill at negotiations and consoling which are very often put to the test. Although Reeds need a lot of appreciation, may have marriage or business problems because of inflexible vies and high expectations, which erode affinity. The lesson for Reed is to be like a garden hose, not a steel pipe. Bless or repair your house.
Cherokee, Reed/I’HYA: Symbol-Reed is the Earth, reflection of the Star Chaga of Pollux. Reed made up the Magician Twins who led the journey to bring back to life the daughter of the Sun. The Casket is Gemini. Energy for Intellectual minds, creation, re-creation, new directions, breaking the ties that bind. A trailblazer and leader. From the East, direction of success and happiness, no matter what route is taken, always ending up in the Light.

You are already the blessing of just being here. (But you could help me spread the word.) much love, in lak’ech, Debra https://www.gofundme.com/life-dream-a-pilgrimage-of-spirit
